He filled my fridge with beer when I helped fix a couple of his Commodore 64's.
I'm not sure why he's been selling his kit the last few weeks, but he is a genuine guy and only lives a few blocks from me.

That C64 image is of someone's Arduino keyboard project, the SD card is from a vintage computing forum and all of the other listings are also taken from other people's websites - noting that the names on one of photo's had been cropped off/painted out. That's what made me concerned really, and you can imagine that it would raise a red flag if someone else wondered why.

Either way using a borrowed photo without explanation or referencing is not a good look and is bound to raise suspicion in peoples' minds.

He was very excited to be able to play games with his C64/SD setup - so it's a shame to see it being up for auction.
